When constructing the shell for 120,000 square feet of office space at the BTV Crown Corporate Center, the biggest challenges that Panattoni Construction, Inc. faced came courtesy of Mother Nature.
The panels were poured in sweltering 100-degree heat, necessitating the use of a water-piped sprinkler system over blankets with water and air misters. Not only that, but high wind conditions during construction forced Panattoni to take extra precautions to ensure the panels (the heaviest of which weighed nearly 150,000 pounds) could be safely erected.
The building is defined by an 1,800-square-foot metal panel canopy that required a collaborated effort to discuss best methods of construction with the structural engineer and architect in order to develop cost effective and timely installation of the metal panel canopy.
The cool lines of the metal are repeated in stainless steel glass wall panels and a stainless steel stair railing, and provide a nice contrast with the dimensioned stone tile walls on the building’s exterior.
